Worcester Warriors are hopeful Marco Mama will be passed fit to face Premiership leaders Exeter Chiefs on Saturday afternoon.
The back rower suffered a blow to the head and had to leave the field during the 17-6 loss against Newcastle Falcons and it was feared he may have to sit out this weekend’s action.

However, director of rugby Alan Solomons said he remained hopeful that Mama would be fit to face Chiefs as Warriors bid to pull off a shock victory.
“Marco is fine and is actually progressing really well,” Solomons said. “He took a knock to the head so he goes through the return to play protocol but is progressing through that quite comfortably so I am pretty positive that he is going to play.”
Should Mama fail to recover in time, Solomons said he also felt he had other players that could step in and lead the pack.
“There are guys like Matt Cox who has played at number eight and we have also got Carl Kirwan and Matti Williams so we have got players that can play there,” Solomons added.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
